SHAPE Magazine approached a woman named Brooke Birmingham and asked if they could feature her in their magazine as a before-and-after story. Brooke is lifestyle blogger who wrote online about her weight loss journey, losing 172 lbs.

Brooke agreed, and sent "before and after" photos to the magazine for them to use. The magazine then responded that they wanted and "after" photo of her fully clothed, instead of in a bikini as you can see here:

 

 

 

 

 

Brooke replied to the magazine that most of the "before and after" photos they feature show women in bikinis, and that hers shouldn't be treated differently, as it shows the true results of massive weight loss.

[You can read her FULL reply here, from The Huffington Post.]
